You have looked at the rest – Now try the BEST!!

Based on the Earning Power: Project management, Ninth Edition (2015) survey, respondents with a Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification garner a higher salary (20% higher on average) than those without a PMP® certification.

Testimonial: The Ultimate PMP® Prep Boot Camp course is more applicable / practical / enlightening than an MBA at 1/100th of the cost. My opinion is that the material taught in the Ultimate PMP® Prep Boot Camp course is the “rubber to the road” of what MBA’s “lines on the print”. Ivory tower thinking is useful if it can translate into practical application in policies and processes / procedures. Project Management is infinitely more valuable in practice than an MBA. Anyone with any ambition and desire to prove their worth should use Project Management methodology to “enhance the likelihood of success” since most of us are doing projects in our profession to varying degrees of complexity and magnitude. — Timmothy Phung

This removes the exam anxiety concerns of not passing the exam and needing to pay for a second attempt.
